critique of obama as leading from behind, which was from an unnamed administration official at the end of a 8000 word new yorker magazine piece last year. it has become a staple of republican critics of the president's foreign-policy. there are some real differences between obama and romney when it comes to foreign policy. those are substantive. romney has called a rush of the number one geopolitical foe of the u.s. promised to the surprise even of his own advisers. he has continued to emphasize that and to say that vladimir putin will get nothing from me. barack obama has emphasized as one of his major foreign-policy accomplishments a reset with russia that has enabled us to get more done, whether it is sending supplies into afghanistan through the northern route, which has become a much more significant issue as there have been problems with pakistan that made it difficult for us to get in and out, or having a new nuclear arms limitation agreement with russia. so that's a substantive difference. there are others as well. when it comes to some of the core middle east issues, how to st
me to finish. it appear that's the obama administration is working with muslim brotherhood and al ga q dan the mideast to systematically eliminate the regimes in all the countries and also christian anti-and judaism, and lib, you know, obama administration working with al qaeda giving them support, intelligence and weapons, you know, to take out what was left of a dave if i's government and it looks like it is going on in sir why, now. wouldn't that be iron fick we found out that our ambassador over there was actually killed by weapons supplied by us to al qaeda? it kind of reminds me of what was going on in the '9os when we sent our marines in there to distribute food and they were attacked by the identifying elements that were in that country and al qaeda was involved in that. >> host: we are short on time. glaes ahead. stephen? degrees there is no rid of the sinaean where that the u.s. would supply arms to al qaeda. certainly, that would not be in anyway in the u.s.'s interest. in fact, what i alluded to earlier, the criticism from the syrians who are fight is that the u.s. and ot
made by obama administration. it was a judge who reversed the position who changed the future of wolf recovery. it changed the goal posts. what we need ultimately need we needed an endangered reform act. it's not working for the betterment of the endangered species and there's nobody in this room, nobody in montana that wanted to endangered species. that want species to disappear from the face of the earth. the point is we need certainty. we need to work together to delist it. turn management back over to the state. the solution and compromise came up was stopgap. it should be delisted. it still allows the u.s. fish and wildlife service to have an influence. the management should be sent back to the state as we have proposed in my legislation. >> the problem is, legislation didn't make it out of committee. still setting there. we got a bill we can get bipartisan support for and get passed. it was done after talking with sportsmen and livestock producers and conservationist across the board. it was the right thing to do for the wolves. it was the right thing to do for montana. we got i

was those deals have already been in march prior to the obama administration. but they were signed, you were right. caller: the one with colombia, i think he should have done it more with the unions there. host: where is grundy? caller: in the western part is the state, buchanan county. host: the candidate were in that area? caller: they were through, but i did not get to attend. i do not get around to good. host: that was roger calling in. next is george from corpus christi, texas, another democrat. caller: a have been a democrat almost all my life, but the last election, i thought president obama was unqualified and he was just too young. jfk at least had a lot more political experience and was a war hero, but obama was way too far to the left. [indiscernbile] the main task of the president is to protect -- the constitution said, and i have always been a constitution fall wower. i think he has come too far, this president, and i am going to probably going to be switching to an independent, and i will probably vote for romney. i am not sure yet, but romney seems to be more moderate and cent

obama. we did not agree on everything. i worked closely on the bush administration on a number of issues that put virginia first. railroads are being built right now largely because of president bush and his secretary of transportation and our ability to work together. we worked with the bush administration in the aftermath of the shootings at virginia tech. i will always be a partner of the nine states, whoever the president is. i also have a track record of working across lines. first, here in richmond. second, as a republican -- as a governor with republican houses. we were the best-managed state in virginia. revested for business all years i was governor, forbes magazine. those were not tim kaine accolades. those are things we did working together. when the president ask that i serve as the and seek share, i think i had my best year. we got smoking banned. all three publication ranked virginia the best place in the united states. we saw a huge improvements in infant mortality. we recruited numerous businesses in the heart of the recession to come to a virginia. rolls-royce opened a m
own. the curious position taken by the obama administration. in particular, the view that the statutes should allow for liability in some foreign cases, but not work is a corporation in one country being sued in another. it did not seem like the argument had any fans of the court yesterday, but i am curious if the panelists have talked about whether that is an intermediate position. whether the court might see that as a way out of this. whether jon cash explain why this brief was not signed by his -- wide jon cash explain why this brief was not signed by his predecessor. -- whether john can explain why this brief was not signed by his predecessor. >> it is so difficult to be a government official. you have to represent all of these competing interests. yes, you want to provide lawsuits that combine the -- provide accountability for bad human rights abuses. you want to uphold international law and prevent abusive reciprocal actions. in the first round of briefing, the administration filed a brief which people applauded. yes, corporations can be held liable for violations of internationa
at -- predicate for a stronger american stance regarding the syrian conflict than the obama of administration has adopted. governor romney's speech today is almost certain to raise this point. whether it will raise it in a way that captures public and managing agent and strikes them as sensible remains to be seen, but i would say that this survey and governor romney's speech, plus, the elements of the ground, they be entering what i would personally regard as an overdue public debate about what the united states ought to be doing regarding the syrian conflict. >> thank you so much. let me turn to hisham, and bill talked about the polarization of american public opinion on for some -- on foreign policy. not surprising where foreign policy has begun to play a significant role in both the campaigns, but what we see in the arab world is with the emergence of more democratic politics, polarization as well. around a number of issues that relate to the relationship, interaction between these arab states in transition and united states and the west more broadly. the poor results that americans seem to un
then, so i decided at that moment i was not going to do 2012. my son was now year-old. he is the obama baby. i second son was born about the 120-day mark of the new administration. so we had a lot of stuff going on and home, too. but when i look at it, it is so different. i have 58 races under my belt. the obama campaign has not had one really this year. so i thought this is really hard work. some people may describe it in the news as a slog. i imagine it is. it's probably really hard to go that long. as far as what is the difference, i don't know yet. at this point you have to pick seven or 58 tests -- 57 or 58 tests to see how things are going, but not this time around. it's a pretty tight organization. i think the romney campaign has had a lot of the same challenges we have had and more in 2008 than this campaign in 2012. in terms of the difference between romney and obama this time? well, one is a calendar campaign and one is an incumbent campaign. no one has asked for my advice, but you see romney coming toward the debates and one of the challenges -- and i will talk about both ca
